Only urgent medical cases being dealt with at Letterkenny Hospital

hospital signManagement at Letterkenny General Hospital are asking the public to consult their doctor before coming to seek medical attention today unless in the case of an emergency.
The hospital is said to be experiencing high activity levels at present which has led to the cancellation of a number of inpatient operations.
“Due to the high numbers attending the Emergency Department, people who require non-urgent medical attention should consult their GP in the first instance.
Those who are attending the Emergency Department may experience delays,” the spokesperson said “Due to the high number of admissions recently, patients who are due for a planned admission as an inpatient should ring in beforehand to confirm the availability of a bed.
Management at Letterkenny General Hospital regret any inconvenience caused and thank their patients and the public for their co-operation.”
